Remote job description

Confluent is pioneering a fundamentally new category of data infrastructure focused on data in motion. Have you ever found a new favorite series on Netflix, picked up groceries curbside at Walmart, or paid for something using Square? That's the power of data in motion in action-giving organizations instant access to the massive amounts of data that is constantly flowing throughout their business. At Confluent, we're building the foundational platform for this new paradigm of data infrastructure. Our cloud-native offering is designed to be the intelligent connective tissue enabling real-time data, from multiple sources, to constantly stream across the organization. With Confluent, organizations can create a central nervous system to innovate and win in a digital-first world.

We're looking for self-motivated team members who crave a challenge and feel energized to roll up their sleeves and help realize Confluent's enormous potential. Chart your own path and take healthy risks as we solve big problems together. We value having diverse teams and want you to grow as we grow-whether you're just starting out in your career or managing a large team, you'll be amazed at the magnitude of your impact.

About the Role
We are looking for a content manager to oversee the Confluent Blog, a near-daily publication for developers, operators, architects, and buyers that covers all things Apache Kafka?, Confluent, and event streaming.

    • Constantly identify areas of improvement on the blog and work with various teams to implement updates that increase engagement
    • Integrate blog content into marketing campaigns to amplify existing content
    • Act as editor-in-chief by providing reviews that will optimize content for conversion on the desired call to actions, onboarding new writers, and elevating our blog program and processes to the next level

What we're looking for
